I'm an international student. I applied for masters degree and got offers form:

- Soton : MSc Data Decision and Analytics in School of Mathematical Science
- Lancaster : Data Science in School of Computing and Communications

The modules in Soton program seem to focus on statistics with several modules in programming, whereas the course at Lancaster provides both statistics and programming. I like course at Lancaster slightly more than the course at Soton. I would like to ask that which one is better in terms of reputation and quality of teaching? How good are the masters at Lancaster University and University of Southampton?

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

From what I've read, both are well regarded. Being further south might correlate to slightly better weather, but slightly higher cost of living. Have you been able to visit either?

Choose the course you think you'll enjoy the most, since that will motivate you to the best result.

I'm going to Lancaster because I live & work in the area.
